“Your husband is not who you think he is” says a male voice in the trailer for Jennifer Garner’s thriller series ‘The Last Thing He Told Me’. For a two minute trailer, it’s hard to understand why they have the same dialogue repeat twice. The second time we are shown the speaker’s face and Garner’s character responds by to him by saying, “you make him sound like a criminal mastermind”. We thought child murderer. But okay.
Based on Laura Dave’s best-selling novel of the same name, “The Last Thing He Told Me” follows Hannah Hall (played by Jennifer Garner), whose husband Owen disappears after leaving her a mysterious note that reads “protect her”. The note refers to his teenage daughter Bailey, who isn’t very fond of her step-mom Hannah. The two try to piece together what could’ve happened to Owen. But like the cryptic warning by a dude said – they probably don’t know enough about Owen to crack the case.
While the dramatic music in the trailer suggests intrigue, it’s hard to determine if the show will live up to expectations. Viewers will have to wait until April 14th to stream the series on Apple TV+ and judge for themselves.
